Hey good evening. Thanks for having me. Long time adventure enthusiast/wannabe explorer. I grew up camping and exploring in a ‘87 Westy and now showing my kids the outdoors in a 2012 LR4. Looking forward to getting out there a little farther! Cheers
Welcome! I like your LR4, looks like you got enough lights too! Have fun out there!

Okay here we go! My name is Loren and my spouse is Danielle, we are a family of 5 with one leaving the nest soon! We have a couple dogs and love to explore in our 2015 Yota 4Runner SR5. We live in the great PNW currently in Washington State near the Columbia River Gorge. So far the 4Runner has a 2.5" lift and full Prinsu rack as well as some lighting upgrades and a TRD skid plate. I've built my own storage system in the back and we have an FSR awning and roof top tent as well. We just recently purchased a TearDrops NW Ranger Off-Road trailer https://www.instagram.com/teardropsnw/ and are getting it outfitted for some Spring/Summer trips hopefully soon! You may have seen our Ranger trailer at Overland NW in Flagstaff in 2021 as it was there for a demo before we purchased it from TearDropsNW! The folks at TearDropsNW are awesome and if you are in the market for an adventure trailer I highly recommend them.

We love to get off the beaten path and have done some 4 low adventures here and there on some pretty rough terrain.
We are hoping to meet some folks by being members and are looking forward to adventures soon! I plan to put up an Instagram page soon dedicated to our Overlanding as we get into this more however you can see my personal profile here if you'd like for now: https://www.instagram.com/lodub78/

Hope to see you out on the trail soon!

By the way @Lifestyle Overland we just discovered your YouTube channel and love your content! Keep it up!

Prost!

Loren & Danielle.

Hey everyone!

My name is Brian, I just finally bought the truck of MY dreams a 2022 Chevy Colorado ZR2, I have already started getting how I want it to explode even more, I already have some experience over landing, but I mostly used a 23Zero 1550 Swag to sleep out of instead of a rooftop tent because I didn’t have a 4x4 so I couldn’t get too far off beaten path. I’m hoping to change that! I’m from eastern North Carolina and I Can’t wait to see you all out there!

Howdy all! Shawn here, and I am an Overlander wannabe and new to the site! I live in Southeast Tennessee and I've got a bone-stock 2012 FJ Cruiser TT I've had for about 8 years, and plan on doing some upgrades. I hope to take my first adventure soon.
Welcome! It looks like you have a good base for an exploration vehicle. Have fun with it.
